Lacy racy frilly bits are all over the runway, Spring & Summer 2016 Collections.  reversecommuter is obsessing huge for Dolce & Gabbana’s pajama party ad above.

Celine has dedicated it’s Spring ad campaign to a gorgeous, simple black and white slip dress and patent ankle boots.  Who couldn’t rock that outfit?  Who doesn’t love simple?

Not ready for a full frontal slip dress?  Baby steps people.  A camisole under a blazer with jeans or wide leg culottes during the day, then va-va-va-voom it up you little vixen for an evening look without the jacket.

Lace making too bold a statement?  Equipment has a streamlined slip dress that borrows from the tank dress.  Jean jacket, clutch and go!

Dumb Down the Price

Celine’s Fall 2014 Collection had a long knit turtleneck that made reversecommuter crumble, drool and stutter.  It was ❤️at first sight…right up to the $2000 price tag.  

  
I justified that it was too limiting a piece for that type of investment.  Point on revelation but I still really, really loved it.  

Fast forward to now.  In the ‘burbs, armed with a rake.

Yeah, that’s pretty much how it feels!

Layer Liar

Denial.  

    
I refuse to acknowledge that old man winter is right around the corner.

  
Nor’Easters.  Blizzards.  The dreaded Snow Days (mamas everywhere shudder with that phrase!).  Nope, not coming.

  
Sundresses, jean jackets maybe add a shawl or a cape if it’s really chilly.  Open toe booties help keep the dream alive!

   
 Slip a turtleneck or a white shirt under the dress if the thermometer is being particularly challenging.

    
Just keep denying the inevitable.  

Dress Me Dolly

Mother’s Day is only 5 more sleeps!  Girls it is time to plan your Brunch outfit.

Mother’s Day Brunch means getting everyone else clean, dressed and wrestling the boys into the dreaded blazer!  Doesn’t leave a lot of time for preening and primping.

Solution – the dress.  One piece.  Pull it on over your head and go.  This is good.  Here are a few front runners in reversecommuter’s humble opinion.  Click the pic to buy it.
